All our anxiety arises from our lack of faith in the Word of God. We will not take God at His Word.
Luke 24:36-39, 36And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you. 37But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit. 38 And he said unto them, why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts? 39 Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.

Since Adam was denied access because of sin, we can no longer access that tree now, but we still need that life, but can’t get to the tree. Since we can’t get there and that future time has not yet come in the meantime how do we access the life from the tree, because that’s the life we need? How? Listen Evangelism page 138 paragraph 4, listen to this explosive statement: The Word of God is our sanctification and righteousness because it is spiritual food. To study it, is to eat the leaves of the tree of life. So, in the meantime while we’re waiting for that new world which is coming since the life of that tree is still the life we need, God has provided a means for us to access that life without having direct access to a tree and that life is in His word.Continue reading
